Graffiti Documentation App

Graffiti are ephemeral. But that doesn't mean our memories of it should be.

The graffiti documentation app seeks to address this, by allowing us to rewind time to when a graffiti existed.

When you take a photo of a graffiti, the photo is sent to a database, it must have a GPS location as well as orientation of camera.

When you go past a location with graffiti, you can be alerted to a new graffiti you have missed so you can view it in person. If it has been washed away, you can switch to VR mode to overlay the last photo taken of it. It will use visual processing to overlay the photo onto the surface of the wall. (Or at the very least, a static photo on top of the camera stream so you can move yourself physically to the original location of the shot)

Comments can be made on it, with upvotes and downvotes.

       With very few exceptions, I'd prefer it if the app showed me the building before it was vandalized.

       Ever wonder if Mother Nature feels the same way about our buildings as we do about grafitti?
